📝Destiny of the Republic Book Synopsis : James A. Garfield was one of the most extraordinary men ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. But the shot didn’t kill Garfield. The drama of what hap­pened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in tur­moil. The unhinged assassin’s half-delivered strike shattered the fragile national mood of a country so recently fractured by civil war, and left the wounded president as the object of a bitter behind-the-scenes struggle for power—over his administration, over the nation’s future, and, hauntingly, over his medical care. A team of physicians administered shockingly archaic treatments, to disastrous effect. As his con­dition worsened, Garfield received help: Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, worked around the clock to invent a new device capable of finding the bullet. Meticulously researched, epic in scope, and pulsating with an intimate human focus and high-velocity narrative drive, The Destiny of the Republic will stand alongside The Devil in the White City and The Professor and the Madman as a classic of narrative history.

📝Eichmann in Jeruzalem Book Synopsis : In 1960 werd de voormalige nazileider Adolf Eichmann in Argentinië, waar hij sinds het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog een anoniem bestaan had geleid, gekidnapt en naar Israël gesmokkeld. Daar stond hij in 1961 terecht voor ‘misdaden tegen de menselijkheid’. In opdracht van het tijdschrift The New Yorker woonde Hannah Arendt het Eichmannproces in Jeruzalem bij. Haar toonaangevende en omstreden reportage biedt inzicht in zowel het dagelijks verloop van het proces als in de grote onderwerpen die erachter schuilgingen: het wezen van de gerechtigheid, de houding van het joodse leiderschap onder het naziregime, en het meest omstreden onderwerp van alle: het wezen van het kwaad.

📝Ik mooi praten Book Synopsis : Ik mooi praten is opgedragen aan Lou, de vader van David Sedaris, die zo vaak op zowel hilarische als ontroerende wijze wordt opgevoerd in vele verhalen van zijn zoon. Voor David is ¿het grootste wetenschappelijke raadsel¿ over zijn vader, een hotshot bij IBM, ¿hoe het mogelijk is dat een man zes kinderen krijgt van wie er geen een zijn belangstellingen deelt.¿ Dat zijn moeder een protestantse is, en zijn vader orthodox-Grieks, en dus al niet eens op dezelfde dag Pasen kunnen vieren, is een van de andere running gags in het oeuvre van Sedaris. Het verklaart de vele conflicten in dit hopeloos neurotische ¿ maar zeer herkenbare ¿ gezin. David Sedaris is een fenomeen in de Verenigde Staten: van zijn boeken zijn meer dan een miljoen exemplaren verkocht. Zijn verhalen verschijnen in The New Yorker, hij leest voor op National Public Radio, en is regelmatig te zien bij David Letterman. Ook in België is zijn faam groot: ¿Is David Sedaris de grappigste schrijver ter wereld? Wij zijn er alvast van overtuigd,¿ schreef Het Nieuwsblad geheel terecht. ¿Niemand kan zo grappig (en ontroerend) over zijn oma, de buurvrouw, nudisten, mimespelers en over zichzelf vertellen als David Sedaris¿ Aaf Brandt Corstius ¿Sedaris is de meester¿ Johannes van Dam ¿De humorvolle, maar meedogenloze kijk van David Sedaris op zijn vrienden en verwanten maken dat je je eigen familie steeds normaler gaat vinden. Wie dit niet leest is gek¿ Candy Dulfer ¿Ik had een boek meegenomen, een stukgelezen exemplaar van Ik mooi praten van de humorist David Sedaris. Hij is nietsontziend in zijn eerlijkheid en zo geestig dat je er hardop bij zit te lachen, en hij stamt waarschijnlijk uit een nog grotere familiepuinhoop dan ik¿ Hoofdpersoon Jack Morgan in Private, de nieuwe roman van James Patterson ¿David Sedaris is niet alleen de grappigste schrijver die er bestaat, doch eveneens de grappigste homo en dát is pas een wereldprestatie¿ Herman Brusselmans

📝D Day 6 juni 1944 Book Synopsis : Stephen E. Ambrose, de aartsvader van de oorlogsnon-fictie, schetst in D-Day: 6 juni 1944 aan de hand van honderden mondelinge overleveringen een beeld van het complexe invasieplan van 6 juni 1944: D-Day, en hoe het al dreigde te falen voordat er maar één schot was afgevuurd. Ambrose vertelt de verhalen van de gewone jonge mannen die niet wisten wat hen boven het hoofd hing en die, omdat alles dreigde te mislukken, het heft in eigen handen namen en zelf de beslissingen moesten nemen om Hitlers frontlinie te doorbreken. Na D-Day zou niets voor deze jonge soldaten nog hetzelfde zijn.

📝The Great Heart of the Republic Book Synopsis : In the battles to determine the destiny of the United States in the middle decades of the nineteenth century, St. Louis, then at the hinge between North, South, and West, was ideally placed to bring these sections together. At least, this was the hope of a coterie of influential St. Louisans. But their visions of re-orienting the nation's politics with Westerners at the top and St. Louis as a cultural, commercial, and national capital crashed as the country was tom apart by convulsions over slavery, emancipation, and Manifest Destiny. While standard accounts frame the coming of the Civil War as strictly a conflict between the North and the South who were competing to expand their way of life, Arenson shifts the focus to the distinctive culture and politics of the American West, recovering the region’s importance for understanding the Civil War and examining the vision of western advocates themselves, and the importance of their distinct agenda for shaping the political, economic, and cultural future of the nation.

📝Hero of the Empire Book Synopsis : From New York Times bestselling author of Destiny of the Republic and The River of Doubt, a thrilling narrative of Winston Churchill's extraordinary and little-known exploits during the Boer War At age twenty-four, Winston Churchill was utterly convinced it was his destiny to become prime minister of England one day, despite the fact he had just lost his first election campaign for Parliament. He believed that to achieve his goal he must do something spectacular on the battlefield. Despite deliberately putting himself in extreme danger as a British Army officer in colonial wars in India and Sudan, and as a journalist covering a Cuban uprising against the Spanish, glory and fame had eluded him. Churchill arrived in South Africa in 1899, valet and crates of vintage wine in tow, there to cover the brutal colonial war the British were fighting with Boer rebels. But just two weeks after his arrival, the soldiers he was accompanying on an armored train were ambushed, and Churchill was taken prisoner. Remarkably, he pulled off a daring escape--but then had to traverse hundreds of miles of enemy territory, alone, with nothing but a crumpled wad of cash, four slabs of chocolate, and his wits to guide him. The story of his escape is incredible enough, but then Churchill enlisted, returned to South Africa, fought in several battles, and ultimately liberated the men with whom he had been imprisoned. Churchill would later remark that this period, "could I have seen my future, was to lay the foundations of my later life." Millard spins an epic story of bravery, savagery, and chance encounters with a cast of historical characters—including Rudyard Kipling, Lord Kitchener, and Mohandas Gandhi—with whom he would later share the world stage. But Hero of the Empire is more than an adventure story, for the lessons Churchill took from the Boer War would profoundly affect 20th century history. From the Hardcover edition.
